Multistate Tax Update — April 25, 2013

Federal legislation: Online sales tax bill likely to pass in Senate as early as this week

Political pundits expect the Marketplace Fairness Act of 2013 to sail through the Senate with a passing vote as early as this week, sending the bill to the Republican-controlled House. A procedural vote on the bill that occurred Monday had 74 senators in favor and 20 in opposition; this is one vote fewer in favor than last month’s vote to gauge viability of an online sales tax bill. President Obama has also endorsed the bill.
